THE INCOMPUTABLE is a major workshop
of the 6-month
Isaac Newton Institute programme -
"Semantics and Syntax: A Legacy of Alan Turing" (SAS).
THE INCOMPUTABLE is one of a series of special events, running
throughout the Alan
Turing Year, celebrating Turing's unique impact on
mathematics, computing, computer science, informatics, morphogenesis,
philosophy and the wider scientific world. It is held in association
with the Turing Centenary Conference (CiE 2012)
in Cambridge the following week,
which will run up to the June 23rd centenary of Turing's birth, and will culminate
with a birthday celebration at Turing's old college, King's College, Cambridge.
THE INCOMPUTABLE is unique in
its focus on the mathematical theory of incomputability, and its relevance for
the real world. This is a core aspect of Turing's scientific legacy -
and this meeting for the first time reunites
(in)computability theory and 'big science'
in a way not attempted since Turing's premature passing. In 2012, the annual
Computability Theory is being organised
in conjunction with
The Incomputable, in association with
participants of the research project
with Partial Information, supported by
the Bulgarian National Science Fund.
Chicheley Hall is a truly extraordinary venue for
the meeting, beautifully maintained by
the Royal Society, and offering superb facilities for the talks, accommodation, and
informal discussions. Set in 80 acres of country landscape, it offers comfort,
free wifi throughout, a bar open to 12 or later each night, and many other
comforts and opportunities for exciting and novel interactions.
THE INCOMPUTABLE, generously supported by the
Templeton Foundation, promises to be a historic event,
bringing the mathematical theory of incomputability centre-stage once again. Attendance
is limited to 120 participants - up to 60 housed on-site - so early booking is advised. The final
deadline for registration is Friday 16 March - after then new registrants will be added to a waiting list.
